Aftermath RecordsFollowing their reunion performance last month at the BET Experience, three of N.W.A.’s surviving members — Ice Cube, DJ Yella and MC Ren — are looking to do a full-fledged reunion tour ahead of F. Gary Gray’s forthcoming N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Universal Pictures is seeking to have Eminem fill in for the late Eazy-E when the trek takes place in Europe, which will coincide with the film’s August 14 release.
“We don’t have anything settled yet with everyone’s schedules,” Universal head Donna Langley said of the studio’s grand plan. “But we think it can create a lot of buzz.”
Eminem’s potential involvement on the tour would see him joining longtime collaborator and former N.W.A member Dr. Dre — both artists also contributed to the film’s soundtrack.
